A golden streak of land woven with rivers, lakes, lagoons and canals, Alappuzha or Alleppy is labelled as the Venice of the East. Alappuzha, meaning the land between the sea and a network of rivers falling into it, evokes a sense of romance and beauty.

Alappuzha’s amazing backwaters constitute its hallmark. The locale for the renowned snake boat races is its criss-crossing waterways. Tourists as well as the local population look forward to the event.

Its long coastline has secured it the status of an important centre for fishing and marine products. The district produces coir, and copra and has a flourishing carpet industry as well.
